Menu Item Visibility Control

Description

Using this plugin you can use WordPress Conditional Tags to enable or disable menu items on the front-end. It works like ‘Widget Logic’ but for menu items.

Usage

You must insert conditional tags in the “Visibility” box in the menu item options form. You can use any PHP or WordPress functions to build crazy conditions and logics for menu items. For example, to hide the menu item on homepage you can set the visibility to:
! is_home()

To hide the menu item to logged in users:
! is_user_logged_in()

To show the menu item only to users with “administrator” role:
in_array(‘administrator’, $GLOBALS[‘current_user’]->roles)

Reviews

Works for me too!

Works for me too! Easy to setup, and weirdly powerful once you wrap your head around the concept.

Works for me

I have a nice menu set up but linked to a bunch of unfinished pages. This plugin helped me disable the menu items easily. I just added “!1” to the visibility fields to hide them. Thanks Hassan Derakhshandeh!

Simply great

This plugin leaves it pretty much fully open to use any function and logic that you like – this means you can create complex conditional menus very easily. I could not ask for better. Thank you for your continued work!
